four states right now, georgia and alabama going for romney. new york and massachusetts for obama. you can mark that down. actually, i could call 40 states right now. only 10 are in play at the moment. but i'm not going to be a total waffle guy this evening. i think mitt romney will win florida. if the governor wins ohio as well, he will be the next president of the united states. but that's a big if. president obama seems to have blunted romney's momentum over the weekend. talking points predicted that would happen last week. because of hurricane sandy, and because the national media simply refuses to cover the libyan situation. so while romney had momentum one week ago, the storm stalled it. and that's where we are tonight. both candidates slugging it out, momentum for both somewhat subdued. in just about four hours the good folks in dixville, noch, new hampshire will cast the first ballots. i love the notch. nature at its best up there romney will most likely carry the notch. but new hampshire seems to be leaning obama. if president obama loses the election, it will be because he co

. president obama was the popular vote winner, with more than 60 million people choosing him to go back again, despite all the negativity. he's the first democratic president since franklin roosevelt to be re-elected with more than 50% of the vote. did they report that on fox news today? probably not. the last time a president was re-elected, this is how he defined his victory. >> when you win, this is a feeling that the people have spoken and embraced your point of view. that's what i intend to tell the congress. i earned capital in the campaign, political capital, and now i intend to spend it. >> did you see president obama talking about that? maybe that's his problem, i don't know. president obama has political capital on his side right now. he told america this is how he plans to use it. >> i am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties, to meet the challenges we can only solve together. reducing our deficit, reforming our tax code, fixing our immigration system, freeing ourselves from foreign oil. we've got more work to do. >> a little bit different, isn't

president obama is once again a president-elect. he wins a decisive victory against former massachusetts governor mitt romney, beating him with 303 electoral votes compared to romney's 206. most notable is the fact that obama carried just about all of the so-called swing states that many considered were up in the air, including ohio, colorado, nevada, wisconsin, and, of course, virginia, which he won narrowly. >> florida is actually considered too close to call. although more than 97% of the precincts are reporting, and president obama does have a lead in that state. the only state that obama lost this year but won in 2008 were indiana and north carolina. still, the swing state sweep gave obama a huge advantage, with experts calling the race in obama's favor once the votes for ohio came in around 11:30 last night. supporters joined both candidates as the votes came in last night with mitt romney's supporters in massachusetts and obama's supporters in chicago. >> that's where tracie potts is back with a look back on what ended up not being such a long night. >> reporter: we weren't even s

hour. president obama bounces from one battle ground state to another using ohio as his airline hub. he's using all the hot spots trying to rally his base and any undecided voters he thinks are left. governor romney is also racing against the clock, tweaking his argument. and in case you forgot, we've got more than two guys running on tuesday, tonight we'll break down all of the battles, particularly for congress and who will decide control of it and what the next president can get done. good evening from democracy plaza. it's saturday, november 3, 2012. this is a prime time edition of "the daily rundown." we're taking a look at how we got here. presidential elections that aren't close are actually odd. no republican has gotten more than 300 electoral votes since 1988. only four democrats in history have gotten more than 53% of the vote. bottom line, this is 1976 meets 2000 meets 2004. in other words, it's a very close race. so how did we get here? the president began this campaign weighed down by a troubled economy and still faces a jobless rate higher than any incumbent seeking re-ele
million obama of voters from 2008 who did not vote in 2010. so you have a totally different group of people who are participating in the process. i mean, i sometimes lay awake at night thinking, how can you get young black people interested in state representatives? that they would turn out in droves to effect the outcome of the state legislative race? i have to confess, i have not come up with an idea yet. on the other hand, presidential races are different. i would say -- as a matter of fact, one of the big tea party leaders is dick army, the one who called barney frank barney fag. and the one who said when bill clinton pass his tax increase in 1993 that that tax increase would destroy the country and destroy the economy. some of you may remember that bill clinton years on the economy were the best they had ever been in american history. it was the same old people that were taking advantage of circumstances that presented itself. that basically -- with a reduced electorate. no, i do not think they have a future. there is a congressman from georgia named paul brown who happens to
of sandy play out? >> it will play out good for president obama. in a time of disaster, the only elected officials who have opportunity to perform our governors, mayors, with the president. all the senators and members of congress are dying to get on camera. chuck schumer is the only one i know who did. this is a real job. the president handled himself well and showed himself to be compassionate, as governor christie said, and christy "endorsement" of the president is nothing but a plus. >> nina? >> you really have to notice here that president clinton built up fema, the bush administration took it apart and then paid the price after katrina, and this president put it back up again and what not political people in, and it is paying off this week, it really is paying off. >> colby? >> it also draws a sharp contrast between the two candidates. here you have president obama citing fema as the vehicle to coordinate the federal effort, and you had mitt romney last year on the campaign saying he would get rid of fema, he would turn the responsibilities back to the states, showing no appreciati
